By Kwasi Kpodo ACCRA (Reuters) - Ghana's ruling party reclaimed a parliamentary seat from the main opposition on Tuesday in a closely contested by-election seen by both parties as a referendum on President John Mahama's rule ahead of a national election in 2016. The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) will view its victory in the rural Talensi seat in Upper East region as evidence that it remains viable heading into the December 2016 election season after a series of setbacks. Mahama's government won election in 2012 but is facing power shortages that cause prolonged electricity blackouts that have angered voters and hurt businesses.

A man rests in Beijing on July 7, 2015, in front of a banner about President Xi Jinping's vision for China's future, with characters translating as "To realise the revitalisation is the biggest dream in modern times of Chinese nationals"Shanghai closed down 5.90 percent and Hong Kong stocks slumped 7.35 percent in afternoon trade, despite Chinese leaders announcing fresh measures to staunch a correction that has wiped trillions off the country's markets. Most other regional markets were also hit by the spillover effects, with many hosting companies with links to China. "China's stock market rout is now spreading to other financial markets, creating a sweeping sense of panic and liquidity crunch," said Zheng Ge, an analyst at Wanda Futures Co. Shanghai is down more than 30 percent from its closing peak on June 12, when it had risen by more than 150 percent in 12 months in a borrowing-fuelled frenzy enhanced by hopes for economy-boosting government measures.

A Russian woman shops at a roadside stall in the Chinese border city of Heihe, but traders say recession in Russia is hitting businessThe warmth of the friendship between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russia's Vladimir Putin -- who meet Wednesday for the eighth time in two years -- does little to counter the bitter economic winds blowing through their shared border. In the Chinese city of Heihe, neon-lit high-rises line the banks of the Amur river facing Siberia's Blagoveshchensk powered by electricity from hydroelectric plants over the border. Cyrillic signs greet shoppers from the north, but traders say recession in Russia is hitting business.
